In their final matches of the English Premier League season, Manchester United play at home as they host AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford in game week 38. The matchup is on May 17, 2016 at 3 p.m. ET.

There have been over 300 incidents of Christians being physically or sexually assaulted by Muslims in refugee camps in Germany, while thousands of other Christians are facing persecution in many different ways, a report has warned.
The German-language report "Religiously Motivated Attacks on Christian Refugees in Germany," produced by the German branch of persecution watchdog group Open Doors, was released last week, though the The Gatestone Institute provided an analysis on Sunday which broke down the numbers and figures.
The report warns that German authorities and police might be purposefully downplaying such incidents in order to avoid the "taboo" topic of Muslims attacking Christian refugees, keeping in mind the growing anti-immigration sentiments in the country. more >>
On Sunday, Ukraine's Jamala won the Eurovision Song Contest, causing a stir among Russians as they said her winning number was an anti-Russian anthem.
According to CNN, Jamala, whose full name is Susana Jamaladynova, sang "1944," a song that reminded people of her great-grandmother's story on how Moscow deported members of the Crimean ethnic group during the second World War.
Jamala is of Crimean descent and during World War II, the Crimean Tatars were deported by the Soviet Union, under the reign of Josef Stalin. While Stalin was the one who ordered the Crimeans to be sent off, European outlets believe that Jamala was also attacking current President Vladimir Putin for the Russian military's push into Ukraine back in 2014. more >>
Legendary Formula one driver Michael Schumacher is considered one of the heroes of the Ferrari team in motorsports.
In the mid-90's, the said team under Ross Brawn, Rory Byrne and Jean Todt, were experiencing a title drought that had been going on for decades. At the time, the team's last victory happened in 1979, although they had achieved various wins from 1991-1995.
The glimmer of hope came in the form of Michael Schumacher, who first got behind the wheel of a Ferrari F1 racer at the winter testing in 1995. In a report by Andrew Benson via BBC Sport, Schumacher was "two seconds quicker" than regular drivers Gerhard Berger and Jean Alesi. more >>
A Dutch group promoting women doing a medical abortion themselves sent on Saturday its first "abortion drone," carrying pills to kill unborn babies, from Germany to the strictly Roman Catholic country of Poland, and called it a "success," as "two Polish women swallowed the abortion pills."
The drone departed from Frankfurt an der Oder in Germany and landed at the opposite side of the river in Slubice, Poland, says the Amsterdam-based Women on Waves group on its website, which also boasts that German police tried to intervene "but the drone pilots were able to safely land the drones at the Polish side."
The police, who say the group violated "Arzneimittelgesetz," or the country's medicine laws, later confiscated the drone controllers and personal iPads. more >>
More than 100 attorneys from the United States and abroad and members of the European Parliament wrote a letter to the Norwegian Prime Minister, saying the government's act of seizing five children of a Christian family to "prevent" them from being "indoctrinated" with Christianity violates domestic and international law, and urging their immediate release.
The five children were "unlawfully" seized by the Norwegian Child Protective Services on Nov. 16 and 17 last year due to the "sincerely held Christian beliefs" of the parents, Marius and Ruth Bodnariu, states the letter sent Friday by Houston-based lawyer Peter Costea and signed by more than 100 concerned lawyers and parliamentarians.
The Norwegian government's action was based on a teacher's concerns about how the kids were being raised by "radical" Christians who were "indoctrinating" their children. The family's appeal of the agency's decision to remove the children from the home was rejected on Nov. 27 last year. more >>
